The RAP Learning Outcomes are achieved through your experience of undertaking a research based project related to a single organisation. You demonstrate this by completing the two components of the OBU RAP; the Research Report (RR) and the Skills and Learning Statement (SLS). There is no syllabus for the OBU RAP and none of the learning outcomes are based on direct teaching by OBU staff. The purpose of the OBU RAP is to allow you to demonstrate certain specific transferable capabilities of the BSc degree programme:
T4 Undertake an independent Research Report relating to a single organisation or industry sector.
T5 Prepare a written report which meets academic requirements of information collection and referencing of information sources.
T6 Use information technology to record and analyse financial data, to collect information from a range of sources and to present research findings.
T7 To reflect on the learning attained through completing the programme and its impact on future professional development and employment roles.
